Welcome to the Somerset Emotional Wellbeing (SEW) podcast!

In this episode, Hoarding Disorder, our hosts Dr. Peter Bagshaw and (substitute host, called in off the bench) David Sealey are joined by Heather Brunt, Senior Case Manager & Projects Lead from Somerset Independence Plus to discuss hoarding disorder in detail.

During the conversation, they discuss what hoarding disorder actually is, why it is different to collecting and how Somerset Independence Plus work to help people with this condition.
